Dairy Connect is an advocacy body 100% focused on being the voice for all partners in the NSW dairy industry and across Australia. Our advocacy umbrella represents the common interests of dairy farmers, manufacturers, processors and milk vendors. We have a broad, shared vision and a collective long term industry strategy.

We are committed to providing initiatives that will reinvigorate and propel the industry forward. And at the same time, provide strong support to all communities in rural and regional dairy farming areas. 


Drought in NSW DAiry

With drought taking an increasingly heavy toll on dairy farms in the Hunter Region and across NSW, Dairy Connect have released a 1-page management guide listing the various outlets of support for those affected producers.

Access our drought management guide here.

In addition, Dairy Connect are proud to have been working alongside both sides of the NSW State Government in order to try and attain greater regulatory outcomes for our drought-affected farmers. View the videos below to hear what our politicians had to say:
